In 1999, Williams got her first big break. Before long, Williams reached new heights of musical success. She was urged to Beyonc Knowles and Kelly Rowland who were looking for somebody to join their hit group, Destiny’s Child.
Williams became a part of Destiny’s Child in early 2000. “Independent Women Part 1,” which appeared about the Charlie’s Angels soundtrack, was the very first song she recorded using the group. In addition, it proved to be the group’s first No. 1 hit on the pop charts.
Williams have more success with Destiny’s Child in 2001, making use of their release Survivor. The album immediately became a top-seller, buoyed by such successes as “Survivor” and “Bootylicious.” She took on a more prominent part on the group’s following studio album, 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, taking on more composing duties. Following the tour to support the record finished in 2005, Destiny’s Child declared they would be breaking up.

Williams returned to the Broadway stage in 2010, playing the part of Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago.
Williams described the encounter as a “wonderful thing” to Billboard. “When three great girlfriends are together, you are free and you also do not care who is around; you are only trying to catch up and be goofy. I had a blast.”
Along with the Destiny’s Child reunion, Williams continues to be starring in a touring production of the musical Fela!. The show is all about the life span of Nigerian musician and activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti. She’s also taking care of a fresh gospel record that “sounds like an R&B/pop album,” she told Billboard.
